Last month, Canada's Moshpit Tragedy Records announced it will give away one of its out-of-print releases for free download from their web site each week for eight weeks.
Moshpit Tragedy co-founder Rayny Forster comments: "Our first eight releases are now out of print and as both a thank you and as a kind of final push to get these releases into the hands of underground music fans, we're offering a high-quality download of one release per week in its entirety — absolutely free of charge. We invite those who missed out on the physical product to check out the bands and enjoy these free MP3s."
Week five (July 29-Aug 4) comes to a start with Windsor, Ontario death metal act CORPROPHEMIA and the three tracks that comprised their earliest demo which was released as part of Moshpit Tragedy's "DIY Series".
CORPROPHEMIA (featuring ex-WOODS OF YPRES, SEARCHINGFORCHIN, and FACEDOWN members) formed in 2006 and after releasing the demo a series of lineup changes took place which now sees the band in their strongest incarnation. An 11 song album entitled "Arrived in Pieces" has been recorded and is set for release on CDN Records. A sample from the upcoming album which better represents their current lineup can be found at this location.
